His book is based on original research, and it recalls many grisly events and sad or unsavoury individuals whose fate has hitherto been forgotten. Among the shocking crimes he reconstructs are those of the baby-farmer Amelia Dyer, the unsolved murder of Alfred Oliver, the suffocation of Beatrice Cox, the red Mini murder of June Cook, and the attempted murder of a family of five. This chronicle of the dark side of Reading's long history will be fascinating reading for anyone who is interested in the town's rich - sometimes gruesome - past.
